4th Annual Richard McDonnell Scholarship Concert

Jazz St. Louis is pleased to announce the 4th Annual Richard McDonnell Memorial Scholarship Concert at The Harold and Dorothy Steward Center for Jazz and The Ferring Jazz Bistro, Wednesday, June 14, 2017 at 7:30PM.

Through the education programs at Jazz St. Louis, students gain access to training from some of the world’s most influential jazz artists. Each education program is uniquely developed to enhance creativity, empower self-confidence and advance leadership skills in young people.

In recent years, JazzU students, directly benefiting from the generous support of the St. Louis community, have continued their education at some of the most prestigious musical institutions in the nation including The Juilliard School, The Manhattan School of Music, University of Indiana – Bloomington, and Berklee College of Music.

Richard McDonnell, who passed away February 8, 2014, was a long-time board member of Jazz St. Louis and the owner of themaxjazz record label based in Webster Groves.  McDonnell believed in supporting the future of jazz music and the importance of continuing music education in our community.


“Rich was always such a big supporter of Jazz St. Louis, and of jazz music in general. We’re honored to be able to celebrate his life with great music and the support of the musicians from the St. Louis scene that he knew and loved,”

 – Gene Dobbs Bradford, President and CEO of Jazz St. Louis


The program includes a silent auction in Nancy’s Lounge starting at 6:30PM, pre-performance by our very own Jazz St. Louis All-Stars, Matt Wilson, and more.
